Almost everything I'll be eating from now 'til fall will be fresh from the garden. Picked what will probably be the last meal of the asparagus for this year this morning, but spinach is ready, as are green onions, radishes, lettuce and baby summer squash. Hascap, if I can stay ahead of the cedar waxwings, are ripe, and of course rhubarb has been on the menu for almost a month. Looks like there will be a good crop of plums too, if we don't get hail or any other nasty surprises from mother nature.  Life is good.

Be careful with the nitrogen rich soils, all you will get is a lot of lush green plant and hardly any fruit . I saw tons of plant in your pics but no 'maters? Potassium and phosphorus are what tomatoes like when they start to blossom.check your PH of the soil, and check with your local ag department,they can tell you the best level for your'maters.

Because they are hard to batter-up and fry when they are ripe!  Taste much better green/fried!

That's what I thought after viewing the pics.  Too much N and plants grow tall and spindly.  I have to be careful with mine as my fertilizer is produced by a flock of chickens.
